After I fell in love with skinny jeans and started wearing those for much of my adult life, I didn't have a single flare jean left in my closet. Everything was either given to charity or lost in the "I can't believe I ever wore these" pile of clothes at my parents' house. So when flares came roaring back this year, I threw my hands up in exasperation because I knew I should've kept my old flared jeans! Everyone knows that fashion is cyclical, right?
So recently, I finally gave in and bought myself a new pair of flared jeans, and thankfully it was on sale! I was looking for something really versatile and classic; this pair by Genetic is so dark it's almost black, so it's perfect for fall. Of course I had to have it hemmed too! But I love them, because they are super comfortable (like a jegging feel) and easy to wear.
Pairing with a classic white shirt and my new Rebecca Minkoff tote makes for a casual yet polished look. The bell bottoms are quite big, so it calls for heels to elevate them, like my Tibi mules.similar) / Genetic "The Cypress" flares / Rebecca Minkoff mini "Dylan" tote / Tibi "Bee" mules (same style in different color)
